For a long time I've been wishing to replace
scp in favor of
rsync due to all the advantages and extra features of the latter (better performance, resuming interrupted downloads, displaying progress etc).
However I'm still stuck with
scp: I'm too lazy to choose which options to use with
rsync. Every time I need a specific feature (e.g. resuming an interrupted download) it takes minutes to research how to do it. Add to it the fact that
rsync with no options has disadvantages over
scp (e.g. it's less secure, if you don't use
scp is just the laziest choice.
I'd like to pick a set of options once and for all, set up a good
rscp alias and live happily ever after.
Can someone recommend a good set of options to use
rsync to copy files over
